Earning Potential

The following projections are for illustrative purposes only – actual earning poten- tial is dependent on a number of factors, including the hours you want to work, the classes you wish to tutor and how much work and effort you put in, not to mention your teaching style. A fun, enthusiastic tutor will bring back customers and word of mouth is the best advertising.

How Much Can YOU Earn?

Think about:

How many hours do you want to work? How many classes do you want to teach? How much are venue costs in your area? How much can you charge per child?

Example One – Tutor A:

She teaches Baby Sign & Play classes, she teaches 6 x 1hour classes per week, she has 16 babies in each class, she charges £5.00 per baby, her room hire costs her £10.


Class income - 16 babies x£5=£80
£80x6 classes a week = £480
£480 x 4 weeks = £1920 - (£10 per hr room hire) £240= £1680 TOTAL INCOME (from 6hrs teaching)

Example Two – Tutor B:

She teaches Ballet & Boogie classes on a Thursday and Saturday – 4 x 30 minute sessions per week, she has 15 children in each class on a Thursday and 30 in each class on a Saturday (with two Saturday workers to help), creat- ing a total of 90 children per week paying £5.00 per child. Her room hire on a Thursday is £12 per hour and on a Saturday is £30 per hour.


Class Income - 90 children x £5= £450
£42 hall hire per week and £20 for Saturday helpers= £62 £450 - £62= 388

£388 x 4 weeks = £1552 TOTAL INCOME (for four half hour classes per week)
